Travis Scott released his long awaited sophomore album titled ‘Days to Rodeo’ on the 18th of August. The project seems to have been well received by La Flame fans across the world.

The album features production from Wondagurl, Metro Boomin, Mike Dean, Southside, Oz, Lex Luger and Travis himself just to mention a few.

Rich Homie Quan, Young Thug, Big Sean, The 1975, Migos and Peewee Longway came and did their bit.
I feel the need to commend Travis on how he kept to his vision of always doing ‘ill shit’ as he calls it. On earlier interviews he mentioned how this album was to be a continuation or a new level of Owl Pharoah. Owl Pharoah and Days to Rodeo certainly feel different. While I can say that at this point I’m still not all the way ‘turned,’ I have been impressed by Travis’ overall growth as a rapper, producer and. It’s great to see and hear that everybody featured on the project got and clearly understood the ‘Days to Rodeo memo’ because they all delivered.

Chancelor Bennett, better known as Chance The Rapper is an American  unconventional  and somewhat quirky rapper. The 21 year old singer-songwriter from “Chi-town” as Kanye West would call it, released his initial mixtape titled “10 Day” in April 2012, which caught only a few people’s attention. Chance did not give people’s negativity towards his music any light of day but went on to release a second mixtape a year later. “Acid Rap”, released in April 2013 as his second mixtape has gained him a major acknowledgement, or rather recognition. In the same year of release, 2013, Acid Rap was also nominated for Best Mixtape at the BET Hip Hop Awards, now tell me that ain’t some real stuff. I guarantee you an awesome listen to his music. If you’re tired of the mainstream Hip Hop music, then this is what you’re looking for. I promise you it will be worth every second of your time.

Down below is a link to his latest great tunes. ENJOY!!

Meet Kevin Roosevelt, a producer/vocalist who started off as a drummer. Having started production because of school policy, what the world has to say about that is thank you for steering this man in the right direction. I was drew to his work by his contribution to HS87. Taking nothing away from the album nor adding too much value to his work, I feel that his absence would be surely heard.

For those who have not heard HS87 and/or the RoseGold EP follow the links below:

DARE I SAY ISAIAH RASHAD IS KING?

King of what? I don’t know, I just thought the title sounded smart. So I stumbled on a video of the BET 2013 Cypher on YouTube. Of course, Kendrick’s verse was crazy but I was more interested in a short dude that reminded me a lot of Kanye West.

All thanks to Google, I got his debut mixtape called Cilvia Demo. One listen and I was hooked. A single called Tranquility pretty much summarizes the rapper’s music.

I’m not saying he’s the next Jay Z but the Chattanooga, Tennessee born Isaiah Rashad McClain is definitely a rapper of note.

Here’s a link to his latest offering
